Shortbread Crust


  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix butter, flour, and powdered sugar until crumbly.
  • In an 8-inch or 9-inch pie plate, pat crumb mixture evenly being sure to come up the sides to the edge. Crimp the dough with a fork or fingers.
  • For a pre-baked crust such as for an icebox fruit pie, cream pie or chiffon pie, bake for 25 minutes.
